We all love sex. For many of us it's a big part of our SL experience. With sex comes the toys, beds, devices, HUDs, that we use to interact with our partner(s). There is a wide variety of things out there to choose from and many designers as well as Edvard Taurion lets us know about everyday. . However I don't think anyone places in doubt the quantity, quality and customer service brought to life in the devices and furniture created by Viara Jewell and her team. From beds to bondage she has something for everyone. She also supports SL clubs and filmmakers with sponsorship activities as well as raising money for breast cancer research . I was lucky enough to steal some time from Viara's very busy schedule to interview her and of course , in True Ginger style, bring you some really good steamy photos of a gorgeous lady. I introduce to you someone whose name you know but maybe have never seen quite like this, the very sexy Viara Jewell:
Curty: Viara, thank you so much for taking time out to sit down with me. By now you are one of the most respected adult furniture creators in SL. How did this journey all begin?
Viara: Thank you for the compliments, Curty. To this day it still amazes me what people tell me about the furniture I create, which is always a big motivator for me to go on. It all started when I was looking for good sex furniture for myself, and didn't find anything that caught my attention. It was either poorly designed, had bad or too few animations or was way too expensive, so I researched on what tools I needed to make my own!
Curty: Was it difficult to learn building and scripting for you or is it an extension of some profession you have in RL?
Viara: In my real life I work with IT, so yes, basically it is an extension of my professional skills. The building part though is something you have to practice in order to hone this skill, because it's more than just a technical ability, but also an exercise of creativity and observation: you need to understand what features your public wants and visualize it in your creation, so you make it appealing to your customers.
Curty: I looked at the size of your team. It's a pretty tight little group. Do you find it hard keeping older items updated while still continuing to deliver new creations?
Viara: My team is a group of very special friends: my wife and marketing manager Dani and her assistant Ali, my business partner Kushi Vyper, my personal business advisor Abi, and the gorgeous DJ Exxx, who keeps the sexy local stream running. They are the big ones responsible for keeping my sanity in the middle of all this! They often share their opinions on everything I make, and test them, so they also play a very important role in the whole process.
Curty: Which creation are you most proud of? Your absolute favorite.
Viara: My favorite so far is the massage table! I designed and delivered it in two weeks! It had been a dream of mine to build one since the beginning, I just lacked the time to do it. When I found a window in my schedule I pounced on it with no second thoughts.
Curty: What's new and what else can we expect in the near future?
Viara: WS Creations has grown fast, and customer demands just as much. They learned that if they look for quality, we are a brand that you can rely on, in terms of products and customer service. Our focus now is to keep building great stuff but with more features not provided by regular engines you see in SL. Innovation is the keyword right now.
Curty: What drives your creation of new furniture? Is it just an assumption of the market or things you would want to see yourself or do you do some kind of customer polling?
Viara: I always start with a fantasy I have my own. When you see an item at WS Creations you can be sure I had some perverted thoughts about it! Still, it is important to realize that sometimes my fantasies are not everyone else's, and I often search my loyal customers group (thank you everyone! I love you all!) for feedback. They always come up with interesting ideas!
Curty: Is WS Creations looking for any help in any aspect?
Viara: I acknowledge that it is tough to keep up with the standards I set for myself, but right now I have a great team to help me with stuff! It doesn't mean though that some crazy idea clicks in my head and I look for people to perform that task. If I find the right one I will do what I can to have the person come aboard.
Curty: I know you sponsor clubs, ever considered sponsoring filmmakers?
Viara: Oh but we do! We have a couple film producers who we have close ties with. Would I like to sponsor more? Yes! Come to me with an idea and we can talk!
Curty: Tell me something not everyone knows about you.
Viara: Sometimes when I'm looking for building inspiration I sketch designs on paper while naked both in SL and RL lol It helps me have an idea of how I would feel playing on it!
Curty: Any thing else I missed you'd like to impart to our readers?
Viara: I would just like to mention again how grateful I am for having my loyal customers, who support me and make all this possible. My lovely team who is always there for you, cheering me up and helping me keep up with all the crazy building. And if you stop by and feel inclined, remember to donate to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer by depositing any amount you can at the entrance of the shop!
I do hope you enjoyed this more inside look at a very sexy and awesome human being.
